David Gregory’s inadvertent(?) slip of the tongue. MTP 7/31/11
The spirit of bipartisan cooperation is alive and well (if only occasionally) on the @cspanwj Twitter stream. Here @JamesInSELA outlines the Grand Bargain he created with a good-faith negotiator from the other side, @HinesJimmy. Somewhere David Broder is smiling.
Steve Scully’s first(?) spot on a CSPAN call-in show, interviewing members of Congress after George H.W. Bush’s 1992 State of the Union speech. An interesting interview of the late Sen Ted Kennedy begins at the 20:00 mark. The topic? Health care, and Republican attacks on Medicare. (sigh)
Paul Orgel’s first day as a @cspanwj host (4/16/93). The topic: our trade deficit with… Japan!
Greta (Wodele) Brawner’s first appearance (11/8/06) on @cspanwj… as a guest!
First appearance by Pedro Echevarria on @cspanwj (2/9/02)
Peter Slen’s first* appearance on @cspanwj. In this segment, Peter relates the results of an important poll in the Bush v. Gore Presidential race, and reports about a vicious attack on a Secret Service agent. (* The CSPAN search indicates one earlier appearance from 1995, but the VCR seems to have eaten the tape part-way through. Tape sucks.)
Third non-answer to the $2.3T (again, T for Trillion) number Rumsfeld gave here.
A second non-answer to the trillions of unaccounted-for Pentagon $$$. Also not answered: who own the Washington Times?
@doobican calls in to question Rumsfeld’s statement of massive amounts of money lost by the Pentagon.
